Biodiversity in Focus

This fact-filled, science-nerdy blog by entomology graduate student and amateur photographer, Morgan Jackson, considers the complexities of biodiversity with a special focus on insects. While some of the blog posts concentrate on vacations, conferences, and other marginalia, most take great care to elucidate the wonders of the Chinese Scorpion, Mesobuthus martensii, or the ethics of selling the naming rights of newly discovered species to the highest bidder on eBay. Still other entries offer career-related musings, such as thoughts about The Royal British Columbia Museum's decision to discontinue its entomology curator position, or discuss the ins and outs of science writing and communication. In addition to the excellent and informative blog posts on Biodiversity in Focus, the well-organized list of Entomology-related websites is worth the price of admission (free). From the list, readers may link to other blogs and resources around the web, from a site dedicated to American Beetles to the Canadian National Collection of Insects, Arachnids and Nematodes.
